Turned out to be a corkscrew!

I've been busy....but I don't have much to show for it yet!

One thing I've just finished is a mystery KAL (Knit Along) with Michelle Hunter at KnitPurlHunter. We made a corkscrew hat! 

Since I didn't know what this would look like, I decided to make the infant size.  I'm hopeful it will fit Leo, our youngest grandson. Maybe he can wear it to his brothers' hockey games. Their colors are red and white.

Cool top!

I wanted a hockey puck for the button so I ordered some hockey buttons. All of the pucks had to be glued on so I went with the hockey player button.

Not too happy with my flap - this is flap #3. I know how to make it better next time!

I enjoy learning new things and this KAL was great. I learned:

  • a new cast on - I just tried the German twisted cast-on, you could use any
  • how to knit with two colors at once - holding one color in each hand
  • a new way to make a nice buttonhole

The KAL was fun - I'm glad I did it and I have a cute little hat!


  1. How sweet! I'm sure it will be loved. It's great that you learned new things during your KAL.

  2. So sweet! He is going to be one dapper little one cheering on his big brother.

  3. With such a cute hat and the lessons learned, sounds like the KAL was a winner for sure!
